As we say goodbye to winter today I thought it would a good time to post an update. This family blog of mine that has been in existence for more than a half a decade, is sort of collecting cobwebs. As days fly by I am constantly thinking about things that I could be sharing on this site, but I never get around to it. Part of the reason is I still don’t feel the same about blogging here as I did when I had my personal blog that pretty much only my online friends knew about. I feel sort of stuck here in the middle between a personal blog and a family website. Different people are reading this than were reading my personal blog and I have to take that into consideration.
Being stuck in the middle is sort of the trend here lately. Many of you reading this are on Facebook and as you know Facebook has sort of changed the blogosphere. Many of my friends haven’t been writing at their blogs either because it is so much easier to post quick little tidbits on Facebook or even Twitter. I often post things about movies I’ve seen, books I’ve read, or something funny that has happened with the kids.
I am going to try to start sharing daily happenings again and see where it leads. My old personal blog is due for renewal and I am still debating if I should sell it to a gal that wants the domain name or keep it for myself in case I feel like I need it again someday. I am leaning more towards the idea that, sure this is a family website, but it is written by me and I should just be me…no holding back.
A few pictures from the past couple of months….
Andrew played basketball for a community ed team. It was his first time playing basketball. It was quite entertaining. He plays a bit too aggressive and had many fouls called against him. Last game he got thrown out. Now he says he might try out for basketball in 9th grade… oh boy.
Lots of posts coming soon. Pictures of our kitchen/family room remodel, my thoughts on the new iPad, and more!
